Preventing animal cruelty is in all of our best interests. Studies have shown that cruelty to animals is a sign that other abuse is taking place in the home. Those same studies show that children who witness animal abuse are at a greater risk of becoming animal abusers themselves.
At Animal Humane Society, we’re committed to breaking this cycle through education and prevention.
Preventing animal cruelty is no easy task, but together we can make great strides. You can contribute by understanding the signs of animal cruelty, knowing animal welfare law, and advocating for the rights of animals.
